Sonata Arctica Blood Lyrics

At first you kindle life

You place it in a man

This man, he has a heart

That’s filled with fire

The man will have a wife

The wife creates the home

They multiply and so

Their hearts are filled with fear

The man creates a wall

He arms, defends them all

This fear becomes his fall

“Blood is a bodily fluid in animals that

Delivers necessary substances such as

Nutrients and oxygen to the cells and

Transports metabolic waste products

Away from those same cells.”

The color of life an arrow of fear made flow,

Auburn rivers in the snow dance the death

Of fading peace of mind

Kept awake by the night

Of the twilights cold, sad weeps

What the child of Orion

Has sown his cubs will reap

The fire is out,

And there’s an ominous silence

But he can see them in the dark

Under the moon, the shadows find them

Wolf – stares in your eyes

Blink first and die

Beauty and fear, of wolves and of people

There’s a cave on the hills,

In the woods not so far away

Never once had he seen the descent

Of majestic gray coming his way

Now he can see those blue eyes

Burning through the darkened night

“He knows the fur, he used to love her…”

Ready or not, there will be blood!

Life is a gift you have no lease for anymore.

There will blood!

You will buy our blood with your own blood

You will buy our blood with your own blood

The last thing you’ll see is a

Wolf – it stares in your eyes

Blink first and die

Beauty and fear within

Who’s more of a beast

A king or a priest

What do you believe?

Things we fear… wolves or the people

Wolves fear the fear of the people

Think, how one fearful man can destroy this world

At first you kindle life, you place it in a man

This man, he has a heart, that’s filled with fire

The man will have a wife, the wife creates the home

They multiply and so, their hearts are filled with fear

Maybe men cannot live when their hearts

Are not filled with fire instead of love

For fear is a powerful thing

Maybe only the might and

The power of fear maintains our life

We function when it’s controlled by denial

The wolf in your eyes blinks first and dies

Beauty and fear, the wolves and the people

Those hills have no eyes, but they hear your cries

Beauty and fear, the blood, the wolves and the people
